Once Love Has Died

Once love has died it cannot be revived
Sweet sentiments are sadly laid to rest
From memories no pleasure is derived
The broken heart is vanquished in its quest

Unnurtured love will quickly fade away
Much like a wilted rose unquenched of thirst
Or flower of the sun cloistered of ray
Affections die when they have not been nursed

I tried to warn you that my heart was sore
My tears a testament of grievous plight
You did not hear my plea for something more
And now my love is veiled away from sight

To resurrect my love is no mean task
For miracle of life my heart does ask

Eileen Manassian Ghali

    How can we appreciate joy if we cannot compare it to sadness. Yes, it is a sad write but a hopeful one. Thanks for your visit. I appreciate it. :)

    Miracles happen every day. This is a beautiful sad piece Eileen. How was your Christmas? Is your dad still with you or did he head home already?

    Love is a flower. Water its roots, or you'll stick with plastic roses the rest of your life. Fantastic.

    Yes, so right. It is easy to wilt and fade..........Plastic roses..........beautiful.........but without scent. Lovely comment, Drake. Thanks for the visit. I've missed you.

    Hi, dear Mrs Menassian. I haven't read Petrarch in the original language, but these sonnets of yours are far beyond Shakespeare's, Sydney's Spenser's, etc. I just see Hafiz in them. And only in Hafiz's ghazals you cannot check your passion with punctuation marks. I'm happy to have met such a great fellow over here whose works will undoubtedly remain forever in the history of English poetry and sonnet. I hope you're fine. Regards.

    Wow, Eileen, the ending is deep. It strikes me in every way. ( This poem made me realize, how much I miss reading your poetry.) Sorry, I haven't been reading much new poems these days. My vacation started one week before Thanksgiving. I even close my restaurant, that way I can enjoy my vacation. However, I do miss being at home, commenting from my computer in hard these days---heheh.. I'm doing most of my commenting from my phone and laptop at times. I am looking forward to reading more this coming year.. So you better watch out with me, when I go on a commenting spree. Like that other night.. LOL... I'm just happy, to be here that is all.. Enjoy your new year.. LUV~ LINDA
